Something we should know about a Defense bill(HR 4310)....

While we're all signing petitions to our leaders in Congress, in order to avoid cuts in our domestic programs that are directly meant for "the People", they're(Congress) quietly passing a huge defense bill( HR4310) for 633 billion dollars. It has passed both the senate and House, and only awaits for the president's signature. I haven't seen or heard anything in the media about it. Apparently there were no cuts in anything that might be helpful to save some domestic programs. So for anyone who thinks Congress actually represents them, or gives a shit, we can give up on that!

1. Obama should veto the damn bill

 

and ask them to start over by a major cut of over 90% to the Department of Defense budget.

Let them hold a bake sale to buy a fucking bomber.
